In general, adjustments do not hurt. Lots of people get worried about them but the vast majority of people actually get a lot of relief after receiving an adjustment. On occasion, they may feel uncomfortable when there is inflammation and lots of muscle spasms. When it comes time to do an adjustment, I will set it up and make sure that it is not painful before actually do the adjustment. If the setup is painful then we can find another way. People will occasionally get muscle soreness after their first few adjustments, but this is typically like the soreness in the muscle you get after doing a new exercise. If it a patient is unable to tolerate and adjustments or is just too nervous about it, other techniques can often be used like Activator Methods where no cavitation occurs. There are some people in our office who are treated without ever being adjusted as well.
